Gabi Gingham


If it's Friday, it's cleaning day for Gabi Gingham. She measures 22" tall. Her blue gingham dress is embellished with a vintage blue buttons and rick-rack. I pinned a couple of tiny vintage clothespins to her bodice. Gabi's apron is fashioned from a vintage hankie. The sentiment on the hankie reads:
Friday is for cleaning with mop and broom 
to dust and scrub and sweep in every room.
Underneath her dress, she sports muslin pantaloons. Her painted on Mary Jane's feature tiny vintage mother of pearl buttons. Her painted on socks are trimmed with lace! Made from aged osnaburg, Gabi features button eyes, a stitched nose, and a stitched smile. I tied a polka-dotted kerchief in her hair. She will arrive at your home~sweet~home with a small vintage whisk broom.  

Charles


Made from sugared osnaburg, Charles measures 7" tall. The snowman features a sculpted clay carrot nose and black eyes. I sewed 3 red buttons to his belly ... and tied seam binding ribbon around his neck. Charles sports a black paper mache top hat. The hat has been painted and aged for timeworn appeal. It is embellished with vintage red and white rick-rack and a pom pom. I tucked Charles ~ along with an antique metal ice cream spoon ~ in a vintage waxed ice cream cup container. { He isn't permanently attached ... and may be displayed as you please. }

Sanford


Sanford measures 12" tall. Made from sugared osnaburg, he features a sculpted clay carrot nose, bead eyes, and a stitched smile. His black paper mache top hat has been aged for timeworn appeal. It is embellished with red and white rick-rack and a pom pom. Sanford is mounted on a vintage ink bottle. I sewed 5 red buttons down his belly ... and tied red and white seam binding ribbon around his neck. I pinned a muslin tag to his chest with an old safety pin ... and tucked small wired candy canes in his pocket. He holds a muslin and baker's twine banner which reads:
